About

Entering into its eighteenth season, AFC Bournemouth Ability Counts is proud to offer over 90 players the chance to take part in regular football sessions.

Initially Ability Counts was set up to enable children with any form of physical and/or learning disability the opportunity to learn and play football in a safe environment. Since then, the programme has continued to develop and expand; offering now the chance for these players to move into both competitive and friendly football, whilst representing AFC Bournemouth.

The overall aim of Ability Counts, is to increase participation and encourage all players with a learning and/or physical disability to play football in an environment best suited to their needs.

In recent history the AFC Bournemouth Ability Counts Senior team were crowned Champions of the 2015/16 Dorset Ability Counts League, with the League squad finishing runners up in their league. Further to this, the Ability Counts Senior team also retained the Dorset Ability Counts Cup Title for the second consecutive year.

The Ability Counts open sessions operate on a pay and play basis, allowing players to turn up dependant on their availability. However for players to be considered to play within the competitive and friendly fixtures, they will need to become a registered player, which will also include offers of social/activity days and outings.
